11:02 pm
now the last time that you stepped on the scale, you were 340 pounds, and i gave you the goal to lose 60 pounds in 3 months, so if this monitor reads 280 pounds or less, you hit your goal. go ahead and step on the scale.
11:03 pm
(beeping) (beeping stops) well, you didn't hit your goal. 295 pounds... so 45 pounds lost in the last 3 months. it was a struggle. yeah. and i'm glad i struggled because i wouldn't know what to do next time. yeah. krista missed her goal by 15 pounds, but overall, i mean, she's lost 70 pounds since i surprised her just a couple months ago, and for me, that's a really positive step, moving into phase 3. it's time to push into phase 3. i want to make this an enjoyable experience. i'm gonna be sending you to the disneyland resort in california for the half marathon. oh, my god. so this is just one of five different rundisney events that they have going on at the disney theme parks. are you ready for 13.1 miles? i'm excited for it. i think that's pretty cool. so pack your bags. we're going to californini okay.
11:04 pm
you got the jitters right now a little bit? yeah, i'm nervous. use it to push you through this race. no matter what, we always finish what we start. yeah. i-- that's--that's what we do. that's all i want to do, is finish. yes. that's what we're gonna do. (man, amplified voice) runners... set... go! (cheers and applause) when i first started runningngs and my stomach was really upset, so i was just trying to, like, you know, get going. (all cheering) good. good. mile 3. (gabi) you can do it! (all) you can do it. you can do it. gabi's screaming, "you can do it! you can do i i mom!" kris said she needed that. (cheers and applause) good. good. i was doing okay. then it got really hard, and my energy started to wane, and my feet started to hurt.
11:05 pm
like, everything started to hurt. i do not. yes, you do. krista has fallen victim to her excuses, but i'm not gonna let her not finish in front of gabi and her husband and her family and her friends. i'm not gonna allow that to happen. you can do this. three, two, one. just jog for me. jog for me. come on. i can't. my leg's starting to cramp again. krista, just... i'm getting a cramp! then fast-walk. then fast-walk. i honestly didn't think we were gonna make it. she had to find some kind of strength from somewhere. do you remember when you were passing gabi earlier and you could hear her saying, "you can do it, you can do it"? yeah. remember that voice in your head right now as you're finishing this final mile. all of a sudden, she starts moving faster, because that struck a chord with her. hold this pace. (voice breaking) gabi can't walk that well, so how can i not finish the race, even if it hurts? 'cause she hurts every day.
11:06 pm
(applause) (cheering) (man, amplified voice, speaks indistinctly) yes! yes! yes! (groans) whoo! that's my baby! mm. it was so neat to have my family there and see gabi, but nobody wanted to do this more than me. congratulations. (man, amplified voice, speaks indistinctly) this is truly is a turning point in krista's emotional momentum, and right now she's got 75 pounds to lose in 3 months, and i pray that she maintains this positive mind-set, but at the same time, i am so terrified when real life happens for krista, because she can slip so quickly. (voicecereaking) i had something really unfortunate happen today. this morningng woke up at 4 40 in the morning... (sniffles) and, uh... found gabi having a seizure.
11:07 pm
and she's okay now. we took her to the emergency room. and it's just, like, my worst nightmare. i don't know what that's gonna hold for my future. hey, dr. schaack, i got your call. what's--what's going on? hi. come on in. have a seat. i want to talk to you about krista. she's doing fine, but her daughter's been admitted to the hospital. she's having seizures again. she wasn't supposed to have seizures anymore. the hope was that this would be the last of the seizures. however, the surgeries are meant to reduce and sometimes eliminate. she always knew there was a chance of recurrence, and i think that she was hoping that she would be one of the lucky few that never had this problem again. you know, hearing that gabi's having seizures again, it c c go one of two ways with krista. either she can use it as motivation, supporting her daughter as she's going through these tough times, or she could fall right back into what she'd been doing for the last several years, and she could gain all of the weight back.
11:08 pm
it's, like, 2:30 in the morning. i've had a really hard time sleeping, um, since gabi had her seizure. i have her set up back here on her monitor. you know, i know the stress has affected, like, my weight loss. (voice breaks) it's so scary. but sometimes i wonder... what's left behind?

(krista) coming into the 9-month weigh-in, i'm a little nervous because my focus has been off,fw that i didn't do as well as i should have, so i know it's gonna show on the scale, 'cause it doesn't lie. here we are at the nine-month mark, and... the last time you stepped on the scale, you were 295 pounds, and i gave you the goal to lose 75 pounds or more, so if the scale says 220 pounds or less, there yoyogo. let's find out what that number is. (beeping) (beeping stops)
11:13 pm
so 325 pounds. mm-hmm. that means that you've gained 30 pounds. going back into the 300s is really frustrating. that's really hard... you know, because i didn't ever want to see 300 again. so that means that you've lost 120 pounds since we've started. long story short,, we . we're at the 9-month mark, and krista-- she still has three more months. it's not too late. this whole year is not about hugs and high fives. it's--it's not all victories. this year is about falling down and getting back up. you've gained 30 pounds in the last 3 months--30 pounds. (clears throat) and that's gonna be the theme for today. we're doing 30 of everything... (sighs) and it's not gonna be easy. okay.

11:14 pm
(whirring) oh, nice. look at that, krista. look. look what you're capable of doing. that's what i want to see. i've never seen you run like this before. i've been doing a 4.0 at home, thinking that that's as fast as i could go, and, you know, i put that up to a 6.0, and i just pushed myself to see where i could go, and it was a little shocking. that's what i want to see. find it. that's the krista that's gonna be here for the next three months and beyond. that's it. huh. 7.0. what do you know? this is phase 4, krista, right here. good. that's what i want to see. she needs to experience a victory and experience a whole new world of possibilities, and that's what this workout is about. big difference from nine months ago. big difference, huh?
